Every Cloud has a silver lining (or in this case a solid sterling silver core)

New silver casting pieces  Popcorn earrings

These little silver and golden clouds were a complete experiment.  The original design came from a ring that I thought I ruined.  So I decided to try and put it back together.  And the result was a pleasant surprise!

I plan on making necklaces and cuff links and whatever else works with these designs.

This was the original ring.

I wear the earrings most days.  And the lovely big chunky rings sit nicely on my fingers with a wonderful weight.  I love chunky rings.  They have always been my favourite.

I am looking forward to conducting more experiments and seeing how they turn out!

Thanks for reading.
